Not one to rest on his laurels, Jivtesh has added a new feature to his already amazing GPWindow.com site. Have a look at the Where's that GP Window? link to see what new shiny toy Jivtesh has given us.
We now have the ability to type in a window's display name and it will find the window and the navigation path to that window for us.
This functionality is not new, as Rockton Software's Mentor/GP Toolbox and the Support Debugging Tool's Resource Information window can provide similar functionality. However, anywhere you have an internet connection you have access to Jivtesh's tool without needing Microsoft Dynamics GP installed.
See the following posts from Jivtesh and Vaidy:
This is fabulous. It's like the floodgates have opened to this metadata after 17 years!
You could swear there was a dexterity community of more than 5 people in Australia by the amount of blogs you put out. Seriously, the people who would read this blog in Australia can be counted on one hand.
Please can you stop this blog coming up on the MSDN home page and make room for more relevant ones.
Love it! What a fantastic easy way to find a window, especially for your staff.
When we moved from version 8 to 10, they couldn't find the windows.
Couple of points I would like to clarify here.
1. This blog is a global one and not just a country-oriented blog.
2. Noticing the hit count on this blog, it has over 20,000 hits in Australia and over 326,000 hits across the globe this year so far, which clearly provides clarity on the success rate of this blog. This blog of David's is considered to be the highest rated blogs in the Microsoft Dynamics GP blogging community.
So the count of readers you have provided does not look justified to the actual statistics...
I will let the community respond more..
Well said Siva!
Thank you Leslie and Virginia for your feedback. That makes working on something like this worth it.
This blog is one of the best things that has ever happened to Microsoft Dynamics GP. David has contributed so many hours’ worth of effort! And it is very well appreciated in the community, if you look at the comments and in the community.
I don’t know why you are A(N)NON(Y)-ED by David’s blog. At least, put your name to back your comment!
I think that Anon's comments relate to the MSDN home page for Australia (thanks Steve for pointing this out):
Because I am based in Australia, the Developing For Dynamics GP blog is included in the blogs feed on the Australian MSDN home page.
While this global blog does not focus specifically on Australian content, it does have a fairly large Australian audience as shown by the WorldMap statistics.
What does "more relevant ones" means? Almost the biggest community for Dynamics GP is here! For blog followers in MSDN lets start counting, I am the first one.
Keep on doing what you're doing! We all think you are VERY relevant and very much appreciate all of your efforts to help the Dynamics GP community.
1. If you think something is not useful (or do not understand), it does apply for the whole world. As Siva mentioned, there are lot of people following this blog in Australia. After all, people who decide which blog should be part of home page are not idiots. They have criteria for it and this blog definitely deserve to be rated among top blogs.
2. This blog is extremely helpful to people who carry out Dynamics GP development. David and his team provide various insights on starting from basic level involving few lines of VBA to advanced levels using Hybrid code.
Bring it on David!
As Kay said, you are the best thing that has ever happened to the Dynamics GP Community. So many of us would be out in the dark without your generosity. You are among the absolute best Dexterity programmers out there, and one of the most knowledgeable people I know about the inner workings of Dynamics GP.
This blog is FILLED with relevant and timely information. People check here first before going to PartnerSource. Anon's comments are shocking. I couldn't believe what I was reading!
This community would not be the same without your contributions - don't let this guy slow you down!
I see that 5 is popular with you though. You are the 5th most popular blog IN THE WORLD! I just noticed that in the WorldMaps Statistics. So, somebody else reads your blog too.
That's #5 of the sites using WorldMaps (and #3 in the technical blogs category). Not quite all the blogs in the world, but still pretty good.
Well, maybe so - but you are too modest.
I love people who criticize others' work and can't even put a name to go with their criticism.
"You could swear there was a dexterity community of more than 5 people in Australia by the amount of blogs you put out. Seriously, the people who would read this blog in Australia can be counted on one hand."
You could swear this blog receives more than 15,000 hits on it's worst month of readership, but nevermind that it bothers only you. The point you missed is that this blog is global in nature and in fact little content is tailored to Australia.
"Please can you stop this blog coming up on the MSDN home page and make room for more relevant ones."
Whenever YOU decide to put out a blog with lots more content and traffic than this one, then I am sure Microsoft will have no issues with making room for it. For now, read up!
